What happens when a man wonders aloud if a pig would make a good pet? A great deal - once his wife discovers a kind the size of a handbag.



Matt Whyman is a writer and house husband. He enjoys the quiet life. His career wife, Emma, prefers the chaos a big brood can bring. On top of four challenging children, one freaked-out feline, a wolf-like dog and a wild bunch of ex-battery chickens, she brings minipigs Butch and Roxi into the fold.



But can the new arrivals really cuddle up on the sofa, or will their growing presence spark a battle of hearts, snouts and minds?



Funny, touching and entertaining, Oink! charts the trials and errors of one man and his menagerie. With help and advice from a seasoned local smallholder, Matt sets out to master the art of managing minipigs - inside the house and out. Then someone suggests breeding minipiglets, and Matt's understanding of marriage is tested in the most unexpected ways...

Review:

Move over Marley, a pair of cute mini-pigs are about to take over the world. (New York Post)

This merry memoir of family growing pains and too many pets has so many laugh-out-loud sequences it's embarrassing to read in public... the most good-hearted, hilarious memoir in years. (Shelf Awareness)

What a fabulous, funny read! I enjoyed every page. Highly recommended for anyone with a pet, a partner, a family, a sense of humour...or even a minipig. (Sophie Kinsella)

Funny, frank and charming. (Lisa Jewell)

Definitely my favourite pigs since Babe... funny and completely charming. (Jenny Colgan)

Written with wry humour and accompanied by numerous photographs, ink is a moving salute to love, family and commitment. (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

Be careful where you read this book because it is laugh-out-loud funny... Whyman has a flair for self-deprecating asides and for making the "ordinary" sparkling. It's compelling, bristles with irony and is sure to delight animal lovers. (Daily Telegraph (Sydney))

A darling book - very funny and definitely for animal lovers. (ABC)

'Move over Marley, a pair of cute mini-pigs are about to take over the world'. (Simon & Schuster)

Book Description:

The hilarious tale of how two minipigs took over one family's life.
